Maybe Google have finally enabled some 10+ year old badly needed TCP
extensions to improve performance and your firewall is now falling over
in total confusion dropping it's packets on the floor?

That's namely the usual cause to unexpected "The connection has timed
out" issues where the same connections works when not going via the
proxy server.
